It was strangely quiet in the house today. The kids went back to school. My son just entered the first grade, so it was the first time I had a whole day without kids.
So, when my kids came home they asked, "Were you bored, hanging out at home all by yourself?"
"Heck, no!" I said. I proceeded to go down the entire list of things I did.
"Wow!" they said. They couldn't believe I actually had that much to keep me busy.
"Yeah, and this is all the stuff I usually try to do when you're home. Pretty amazing, isn't it?"
I could tell that they were impressed. Maybe now I'll get a little respect!
